An Enthusiasts Daily Driver
By carnuts3 on
2011 Audi S4 Premium Plus quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 7AM)
Driving my new S4 four weeks now and am enjoying the car immensely.
Easy and very fun to drive both in town and on the hwy.
Put on 2100 miles - 900 in town and 1200 on a long road trip.
Fit and finish is top notch.
Blend of performance, luxury/comfort along with its mid-size makes this car almost perfect as a daily driver.
Doesn't quite have the surgical handling and steering feel of a BMW 3 series.
But the S4's power, smooth/responsive drive train, top notch build quality and materials, and extra six inches in length over the 3 series more than makes up for this. The S4 is a fast, stylish, higher end performance vehicle that is well worth its higher price.
Powerful/torquey engine with a smooth and responsive transmission.
Top notch build quality and materials - especially the high-end interior with soft nappa leather.
Very attractive and stylish both inside and out.
Center console layout is overly complex and button happy.
Accessing controls while driving, especially the nav, could be challenging and is
Numb steering and brake feel is a little soft.
Need to include memory seats as a stand alone option.
Overall, if this vehicle was 2 inches wider and 4 inches longer, it would go from "almost perfect" to "perfect" as a daily driver.
